that's why i love her.

My beautiful roommate Alicia Lee knows I've been going through a tough time lately and I woke up today to find a Post-It Note stuck to my door with these verses. I'd just like to share them. And tell Alicia that she is truly my best friend.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful." - Colossians 3:15

Matthew 6:25-34- the "do not worry" passage

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." - John 14:27

"Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me... into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord, the God of truth." - Psalm 31:3,5

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." -Psalm 139:23-24

"I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to be in plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength... And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:12-13, 19

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:10
